Leftover Mashed Potatoes? Make These!

It was after a holiday or dinner party, I can’t even remember which it was so long ago, that I was left with a huge bowl of mashed potatoes.

I knew that I made a lot, but I did that on purpose because they are usually the first thing to go. Most of the time, I never make enough. I don’t know if I overdid it, or if people were just filling up on other things that particular day. I did know that I was at a loss of what to do with all the creamy and delicious potatoes.

We would be able to eat some, but I mean, there were a lot! I decided to look around and see what I could do to sort of re-purpose the food if you will. That’s when I found this recipe on Facebook for mashed potato bites and cheese balls. Now we’re talking.

I didn’t even wait to make them. I tossed them together while the kids were at school and they caught me chowing down when they walked in the house. It was a good thing that this made a lot because we all just kept eating and eating. I will never be at a loss of what to do with mashed potato leftovers again!




Quick Tip: Add crushed red pepper flakes for more spice.
